Some of San Diego’s No Justice, No Pride voices

On the Saturday of San Diego’s Pride weekend, there was a protest of about 50 people at noon, at Sixth and Upas, organized by the San Diego Chapter of No Justice, No Pride.

Booze and bites with a view

The Nolen is a breezy rooftop bar on the 14th floor of the Courtyard by Marriott in downtown San Diego. I stopped in one balmy afternoon enticed by their happy hour prices.
